    I uninstalled blackra1n by mistake before I was able to install Cydia
    and others.
    Now I am unable to get blackra1n icon back to my iphone 3Gs. I do use
    blackra1n
    everytime I reboot my iphone but it won't add its icon anymore. What can
    I do to fix it?
    Thanks.

    Blackra1n detects if your phone is already jailbroken and will assume that you are just rebooting. Unfortunately, the usual remedy is to restore and jailbreak, but your phone cannot be restored to anything but 3.1.3 which will cause you to lose your ability to jailbreak. The only other thing I can think of is to try running redsn0w. Be sure to select the option to install Cydia this time!

    wow. that hadnt even crossed my mind. i was gonna say he could get the blackra1n iphone application from a website, and put it on via an application such as phoneview or phone explorer on a mac.

    Not sure I'm following you here. Do you mean simply copying the blackra1n app into the apps folder, or some such place, of the iPhone using an app like phone explorer and, then, just running br when it magically shows up on your screen? Such an approach, while logical at face value and clearly appealing, seems incredible upon a little reflection. Tho if it worked I wouldn't complain...

    yes thats what i meant. and it would work 100%. get the blackra1n app off someone elses phone or ipod. place it in / > applications, name it as Blackra1n.app. Reboot the phone and itll be on the springboard. working fully funtionally just as it should.

    Do you know for certain that blackra1n doesn't rely on files or packages stored outside of the Applications folder? If not, you cannot say that it "would work 100%."

    Junk, I admire your creative thinking, but I got a feeling it ain't that simple. If it is, I'll drink a peppermint tea, maybe even a beer, in your honor.:)

    On reflection, BR definitely depends on an iPhone being JB'en -- have found that out repeatedly. Seems like a stretch to assume that simply copying a file into the device would circumvent or actually perform the jailbreaking process. Just thinkin'.

    If that imaginative technique DOES somehow work out for you, could you send me the blackra1n ipi (or whatever) file? I could give you my e-mail in a pm. 3.1.3 destroyed my BR, and I don't know anyone else here in Japan using it. Anyway, plan to play with Explorer this weekend.

    Good luck!

    What ?!?
    So if it works on your ipod then it will work 100% of the time? for 100% of people? on 100% of iDevice's?
    Even if it works on your ipod you still cannot state it will work 100% of the time.

    pcs are junk's theory shouldn't work as the blackra1n jailbreak does NOT give you root access till you have added afc2add (which requires cydia), best option is to use redsn0w and tick install cydia and already jailbroken

    WOW!!! this is the perfect answer..Thanks a lot!!!!
    I uninstalled blackrain by mistake and now used redsn0w, it installed cydia on my iphone and then i added blackra1n.com in source and i got blacksn0w under packages. And, by just clicking on blacksn0w icon, it unlocked my phone. :D:D:D:D

    Because he was banned shortly thereafter for knowingly posting bad information and providing links to trojans? Believe me, the kid was not only clueless but malicious.

    You are mistaken. He was permanently banned on Feb. 20. He created a second account on Feb. 21, which was promptly banned. He has not been back since.
